Teacher Cards & Gifts πŸŽπŸ–ŒπŸ“πŸ“–

*Β Click to visit my etsy shopIt’s hard to believe we are nearing the end of school term and summer holidays beckon! But first – remember to thank all those lovely people who work in schools. Teachers, teaching assistants, after-school workers, janitors, tutors … And anyone else I’ve forgotten! They do such a brilliant job and deserve a wee thank you.

All of my cards and bookmarks can be personalised for the recipient. They come in a lovely gift bag and  I always love to add a little confetti. I think some cute silver or red stars would be a lovely surprise! ⭐️⭐️⭐️ PLUS free postage in the UK!

πŸŽ‰Special treat 10% off all teacher cards and gifts until 14th July 2018. πŸŽ‰

Any questions, just message me and I’m happy to help create the card or bookmark you would like.

* I love taking photos for teacher cards as it gives me an excuse to use my Snoopy and Charlie Brown ruler and stationery set πŸ˜€

Happy browsing!

Great British Button Challenge

Hobbycraft recently surveyed 10,000 people and discovered that 1 in 5 people in the UK cannot sew on a button. More than half never had sewing at school.

To tackle this, Hobbycraft are inviting teachers to pop in to their store between now and end of July for a free bag of buttons, stickers and a teacher’s guide. Then they can teach their class sewing skills.

It’s a great idea and hopefully more people will benefit from the scheme. VisitΒ HobbycraftΒ to find out more and discover sewing projects you can do.

Wee sewing project I took part in.
